Each Beauty Box 5 comes with a description card. This month’s theme is Adventure Awaits! (I love this print, too!)

Now, on to the items!

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette Sampler – 2.4 g Value $1.60

This is a TINY sampler, but at least you get to try 4 different colors.

The pigment varies a bit on these. The two shimmery shades gave me the most color payoff, the highlight matte white color took multiple swipes to show up, and the satin lighter bronze shade had decent pigment.

LARITZY Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Bare – FULL SIZE! Value $18

Subscribers will either receive this shade or Beau.

This is a nice neutral shade for my lips, and the pigment is good, too. (And I appreciate that all LaRitzy products are paraben and cruelty free.)

Jesse’s Girl Liquid Eyeliner in Blue Hawaii – FULL SIZE! Value $7

This felt-tip eyeliner lets you get a precision line:

And the pigment is SO impressive! The liner just glides on and gives you the boldest blue color. Here it is swatched above the lip liner and eyeshadow sampler:

(The eyeshadows all have a few swipes to get them to show up.)

Prestige Cosmetics My Biggest Lashes Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $7.50

I always compare mascaras to my all-time favorite (tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes), and this one held up pretty well!

The formula goes on light, but you can apply multiple layers without any clumping issues. I was able to get impressive volume and length with this formula!

Did Hair Jeweled Hair Tie Set – Value $7.50

(FYI – subscribers are supposed to receive two hair ties, but my box was missing one.)

Considering I wear hair ties on my wrist more than in my hair, I’m happy to report that the sparkly bead on this hair tie wasn’t annoying on my wrist!

Verdict: This month’s Beauty Box 5 has a retail value of about $41.60. I think that’s great for a $12 box! The eyeliner and mascara were the standout products for me this month, but everything in the box worked for me and will go to use.

What do you think about the June Beauty Box 5

FYI – If you sign up for a Beauty Box 5 subscription by the 21st of a month, you’ll get that month’s box as your first box.

  1. I was really hoping they were a quality box.

  2. Just got my box today. I got the eyeliner in violet. I kinda wanted the blue. anybody else get a variation?

    • I got the Violet eyeliner too. I was excited for the blue but at least it’s something new and I really was more excited for the pop of color. I will try it. Happy it wasn’t black or brown.

    • I got the violet too. I got a blue pencil in another box so I was super excited to see Violet!

  3. I just cancelled. I signed up on June 4th for both the monthly and mystery box. I received my mystery box, but still haven’t received the monthly one. I emailed them 5 days ago cause it says the order is still processing, but they still haven’t replied.

    • Make sure to call your bank or credit card company ASAP & speak w/ someone personally. Look this company up on the BBB site. You can’t get a response from their parent company either. I had to go to the BBB & go into my bank over this company. They actually ended up costing me money but still would not respond & billed yet again?! Went back to the bank, that’s when the bank refunded the fees for “stop payment”. My bank was able to make contact somehow regarding the stolen funds. Finally! After months of this company’s crap, I am no longer being billed & finally got refunded some of what they owed me but I’m still out $15.00 for a mystery sample box + shipping.

      • That’s crazy! Wow thanks for the tips! The least they could’ve done is give me an estimated shipping date. I checked out their Instagram and wadaya know….So many complaints on not getting any replies. Sigh

    • Go to facebook and message them..I had same issue, but I didn’t cancel and they sent it right out..email response wasn’t great

  4. I love this box. So happy to get a blue eyeliner, and mascara I have never tried. The coastal is great since there are 4 colors instead of the 2 I get from birchbox. I always get items I never get from other subs! Plus I only pay $5 a month for this box. I got the btbf deal for $7 then got a special promo from bb5 for 2$2 off the $7 for a year! Yay!

  5. Does anyone else have trouble with customer service here?? I signed up in june, got a mystery box and monthly box and a free eyeshadow (last month’s deal) and I got the mystery box within a week and a half…no may box…I figured they would not charge me come july..but they do charge me again on July first, and I STILL have no boxes besides the mystery box. I have reached out several times and I get an email back saying “thanks babel got your email, someone will get back with you” and never does. ..

    • They might take a little longer than average,but they have always gotten back to me and have always been really nice.There a smaller subscription box out of Austin Tx.

      • Okay, I was just wondering….it’s been almost three weeks and I get the generic email,but no response to my issue.

        • I just canceled by email and they responded to me next day!

        • That’s weird that it’s been three weeks,that doesn’t sound right.Maybe you should email them again

          • I screen shot my order showing I got my mystery box, but not the monthly box through Facebook and they sent the monthly box that day

      • Their* sorry

  6. Gosh, this looks really fun! I just received this same Laritzy lip liner in Bare in my Benevolent box and the rest looks great too. I wonder if I can sub now and still get the same box?

  7. Liz, I appreciate so much the little-but-important info you and all MSA reviewers add. I wondered what shade the lip pencil Beau was, and there was the link right in your review. I appreciate that there are almost always links in spoiler alerts too.

    I’m thrilled to see an eyeliner that a) is not pencil or gel, because my old crepe-y eyes won’t put up with them, and b) is a gorgeous bright color, not the same old black or brown or colors that are so dark that someone has to be really close to you to see that it’s not black.

    I will admit that I’ve enjoyed all subscription boxes a lot more since I started swapping (I also subscribed to a lot more, too). It’s not as big a deal to me if I get some products / colors I don’t like, because I can swap them with other folks for things I do like. It does take some time and extra money but I really love it.

  8. That blue eyeliner!!! 👀💙 Perfect for a colorful wing while on a summer getaway.

  9. Hmmmm I have to say I’m very underwhelmed with bb5 this month.Im just not impressed that they put a sampler of eyeshadows that you get when you purchase something from coastal .Then basically a pencil,pen, rubber band and a mascara.Oh well this is really the first time I’ve felt this way about bb5 “So hopefully it’s way better next month because I pay almost 17.00 for each box

    • Yeah, the first time I saw the spoilers for this month’s box I thought this wasn’t a good value, especially since I don’t even know what I’d use a hair tie like that for (seems like it would tangle, and I am not sure how flexible it is), and the shade of that blue eyeliner is too light for my taste (now a rich cobalt color – that I could definitely go for). And the eyeshadow sampler has no retail value, I did get all the varieties for free with my previous purchases from Coastal Scents.
      Really the only thing I would have used (maybe, potentially) is the mascara, and it’s only worth $7.50. Oh, and the lip liner if I received it in “beau” (the one above is really not my color).
      Super glad I am not subscribed this month.

      • Same. I canceled after receiving this box. I was just underwhelmed. Those types of hairbands for me dont even pretend to hold my hair. The lip pencil was too dark for me. The eye shadows didnt show up well for me even after applying with a heavy hand. I did like the mascara, but that blue eyeliner? Blech! I dont know if that means I’m saturated with too many makeup products or what, but I decided it wasnt worth it anymore!

    • Sorry I quoted the wrong amount I pay ,that amount is for my allure.The price I pay is 12.00 plus tax because I live in Texas.I think I’ll just go ahead and cancel when my three months is up ,then I’ll maybe come back later when a good deal is offered so I can get the box for 7.00

  10. what a great box!

    • Agreed! What a great bargain for the $7-per-box deal. Usable, fun to try, and NO HIGHLIGHTERS!

      • Do they do the $7 box deal often?

        • Liz…if you happen to see this…I didn’t see a review of Rag Tag box this month…not sure where to post this question lol. if you need someone who has finished their cross stiches within the month contact me and I would be more than happy to review.

          Liz Petrus…I got mine on Black Friday or better than black Friday I can’t remember which one lol.

          This box is a homerun all the time! Full size products you CAN’T beat for $7 per month.
